EMMITSBURG, MD- The Mask was a comic book series that follows a magical mask which imbues the wearer with reality-bending powers and physical imperviousness, as well as bypassing the wearer's psychological inhibitions.

Wearing a protective mask, senior Kaitlin Wylie (Croydon, Pa./Pennsbury) scored in the 62nd minute to give Rider a victory at Mount Saint Mary's Sunday afternoon.

The goal by Wylie, a defender, was the first of her career. "It was my first goal so I guess it does have super powers," Wylie said. "Maybe it will be a fashion statement now."

Wylie scored on a 'set piece' off of a corner kick by senior Demi Mello (Mattituck, N.Y./Mattituck). "We scored on a set piece that we worked on a lot in practice so that is rewarding," said Rider head coach Drayson Hounsome.

"Demi passed the ball in and we did a play where everyone runs toward the goal and I hang back and attack the ball," said Wylie, who broke her nose at the end of last season and the corrective surgery that followed requires her to wear the mask, "and I headed it in."

"It was her first career goal, so that is great," Hounsome said. "Her timing was really good. She met the header really well, so it was a good goal."

With the victory the Broncs are 3-0 for the first time since 2001 when Rider began that season a best-ever 3-0. "Being three and oh is good, but really we just want to learn from these experiences and the way we dealt with the conditions and the pressures we were under is more important," Hounsome said  "Finding a way to win this game and getting the shutout means more than the three and oh record, at this point."

Rider senior goalkeeper Jenn Nichols (Stratham, N.H./Exeter) made a season-high eight saves for her third consecutive shutout.

Rider (3-0) out-shot MSM (1-1) 12-10, including 10-6 in the second half after a 30-minute lightning delay.

"Today was a hard-fought game in torrential rain," Hounsome said.  "The first half we had 20 mile per hour winds in our face and we had to absorb a lot of pressure.  We came out in the second half on fire. We played really well and without the strong wind in our face we were able to play our game."

MSM had 10 corner kicks to just two for Rider.

Rider lost the 2011 opener in overtime 1-0 to The Mount.  Rider and The Mount tied 1-1 in their first and only other meeting, in 1997, Rider's first year on the varsity level.

The Mount began the season with a 4-1 victory over Towson Friday night.

Rider returns home next Sunday, September 2 to host Fairleigh Dickinson University at 3pm
